Small Wonders and A Front Porch Nature Study

May 7, 2009

It is very windy during the winter and early spring at our house, so each year we put our porch swing up as high as it will go to protect it from the elements. This year, with the arrival of baby Smith, I haven’t paid much attention to the outside of our house yet. The front porch is a mess, but all in good time, right? Well, I kept noticing little messes like this one showing up, but didn’t think a thing about it until the other day my daughter shouted, there’s a bird making a nest in our swing!

Lo and behold! How exciting…a nature study right before our very eyes!

Since then, we have been trying to care for Mrs. Robin and make her as comfortable as possible during her confinement. (I can relate, you know!)

When she hopped away from her little spot a little while ago, I tip toed out to get a couple of pics of the progress.

Our swinging days will have to wait, for Mrs. Robin needs it more than we do right now…and hey, let’s be honest. I wasn’t going to be cleaning off that front porch for a while yet, anyway!

    Now I feel awful for telling my husband just the other night to knock off a nest from our back deck…pretty sure it’s a pigeon, not a robin though, so that makes a difference, right?
